Description
After the Watergate scandal corrupted American democracy, it took a gang of honest politicians to restore honor Not long after burglars were caught raiding the Democratic National Committee headquarters at the Watergate Hotel, Congressman Tip O Neill noticed that Democratic fundraising efforts for the 1972 election had stalled. Major contributors were under IRS investigation, and Republican lackeys were threatening further trouble if those donors didn t close their checkbooks. O Neill sensed a conspiracy coming from the Nixon administration, but it wasn t until the scandal broke that he connected the threatened donors with the Watergate burglary. In the boldest move of his career, he did something that would shock the nation: O Neill decided to impeach the President.To his fellow members of the House of Representatives, this was an ugly idea. But as evidence mounted against Nixon and his cronies, O Neill led the charge against the President. This blow-by-blow, conviction-by-conviction account is a gripping reminder of how O Neill and his colleagues brought justice to those who abused their power, and revived America after the greatest political scandal in its history.This ebook features an illustrated biography of Jimmy Breslin including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from the author s personal collection."
